If you find yourself hallucinating, is this a sign that it’s time to retire? Walking to the water machine at the office this morning I glanced at a conference room. There was a guy in there wearing a suit and working away on a laptop. I swear he is no more than 12 years old. I don’t think he even shaves yet. It stopped me dead in my tracks.
It is the holiday between Christmas and New Year. Maybe he’s someone’s kid. I walked back and looked again. The kid is wearing a tie and there’s a cell phone on the table by his briefcase. None of these guarantees he’s an adult accept the suit. A twelve year old would be texting away and the crotch of his pants would be down around his knees. Well maybe. Do I even know anymore? Oh my God. What is happening to me? Am I slipping into advanced Geezerdom? I hope there is a treatment for it.
